Ready, Set, Yes!

I have been quite the busy bee lately.  I have missed my moments with the newsletter and the blog.  So much has been going on that I have barely had the time to catch my breath.

In three days, I touched down in four states: New York, New Jersey, Georgia, and Florida. I have yet to settle.  I am transitioning in more ways than I care to think about at the moment.

It is not that I necessarily like hopping around from place to place or state to state.  I am not jet setting by any means.  It was simply time to move, and I am seeking to be obedient.

You see, I had prayed for certain things in my life.  I had reached out to the Divine and asked for certain things that I felt like I and my family needed. I asked for my next phase of growth too.

And then I waited…  And I kept on waiting wondering if I would ever get any answers.

Suddenly the windows opened and opportunities were placed before me.  It was not exactly in the timing that I had planned. It is not at all at the pace that I prefer to move. This is not quite how I had pictured it, but…

It was an affirmative answer to my prayers.

And so I moved and I am still moving physically, mentally, and emotionally in the direction of growth and development, change, and my blessings. I don’t always feel like it. I don’t always feel up to it.  Sometimes, I don’t feel quite ready, but I have to trust that something greater within in me knows that I am.

My prayer these days is simply, “YES!” to all things healthy, happy, productive and positive in my life because I asked for them. Consequently, I have said yes to a new job, yes to a new home state, and yes to a new dimension of growth for my life and career.

There are days when I feel exhausted, when I question so much going on at one time, but then I think about how inconsiderate it would be for me to dismiss the very opportunities and blessings that I asked to appear in my life. How would I feel if I presented someone with a very special gift and they politely said to me, “No, thank you.  I really don’t feel like accepting a gift today.  Maybe later.”

Knowing me, I would probably be offended and would never offer that person a single thing again. I am so glad that that there is something out there much more loving, gracious, and forgiving than I am.  I do not wish to offend, so my answer is “YES!” to my blessings as best I can.

Here’s to arms and hearts open wide to receive the beauty and growth that has been waiting for us!

Sometimes we have to gather our courage and dive in head first whether we have all the answers, know all the details, feel like we are completely ready or NOT!  If we don’t, we could end up being in the same place and never ever making or move or embracing this wonderful dance of life.

How about you? Any prayers being answered your way?  Have the gates from heaven been pouring forth blessings in your direction? Are you remembering to say, “yes?”

I’d love for you to share! You never know how your story or comment may be a blessing to someone else.  Leave your response below! I look forward to hearing from you!

As always,

Be Joyful,

Be Creative,

Be Inspired,
